I leave at 3:30 a.m. in the morning to head to the hospital for my surgery.  Cannot believe it is finally here!  I have not been nervous and a lot of that has to do with everyone here at OH.  I just want to thank you all again for sharing your stories, experiences, before/after pics, etc. so that I can have a good idea of what to expect and how to deal with things that may come up.

I have only been secretly excited as I hate getting hopes up and then something not happen.  When I am laying there in pain I guess I will finally be excited!  ha ha  But doubt that I will have much pain when I wake up as I am sure I will have the goofy juice pumped into me still.   Should be out by Thursday and will post when I can.  See ya on the losers bench!

Thanks so much!

You having a warm or average summer in Fairbanks this yr?  I do not miss the long cold winters but truly mourn for the summers in Alaska!!  A few wks ago my family went on a mini vacation and I got to eat some King and Snow Crab from Alaska.  For the first time since we left in 2005, we found a place that knew how to cook it right!  OMG!!  I miss that and halibut so much!   OH!  And the fresh berries and produce too!  I would be in heaven for post WLS that is for sure!...Hmmm maybe not, I would be tempted to overindulge!  haha

Congratulations ! My mother was a nurse and I grew up thinking and believing that the only reason someone was admitted to the hospital was because they had to be. I remember being in the bed with the IV hooked up and a warm blanket on my legs that I"m really really here and I came on my own free will. I was a volunteer for surgery. That seemed to consume most of my thoughts. The surgery didn't bother me at all. Good luck and send a post when you come home from the hospital.
